“Many [pyhsicians] consider it a psychiatric problem,” Citovsky said. “However, there might be something that they develop,” he added, underscoring that his laboratory analyses have cracked the chemical puzzle of the fibers.
“They’re made up of polysaccharides, sugars,” he said. “Long chains of sugar molecules. The problem is the people who deny the existence of the disease. They say this is lint or dirt that people find on their skin. But it’s not dirt, it’s not lint, it’s not twigs.
“But on the other hand, it is not a living creature, because some people say they’re worms.”
Citovsky received samples of the fibrous material last year from San Francisco physician Raphael Stricker.
Interesting stuff. I’d like to hear more about these analyses. Some statistics perhaps? Why this constant science via news release?
One wonders what kind of sugars do not melt at 1700F? Perhaps the press should stop repeating those ridiculous claims of non-melting fibers. But which is the real Morgellons fiber? The cellulose one? The non-melting one? Of the new contender, the polysaccharides?
There are actually modern fibers made for polysaccharides. For example, DuPont’s Sorona fibers, a “cotton-like” fiber, using Bio-PDO, made from corn. Click the image below:
Perhaps though this modern fiber is a little too unlikely. What other fibers are made from polysaccharides?
Yes, that’s right. Cotton.
Cotton is made from cellulose, cellulose is a polysaccharide.
Wait, there’s more:
Paper and Tissues
Yup, Kleenex too. Also cellulose, also a polysaccharide.
